The more interesting character is Marshall Weston. He has it all: Liz, the perfect corporate wife (think Mad Men's Betty Draper) who goes so far as to learn rudimentary Japanese to better entertain the wives of her husband's potential clients, three children, a huge salary package and Ashley, the mistress in Los Angeles who lives with the twins she and Marshall created eight years prior. Yes, he has kept his second family under wraps and under his thumb for eight years. Marshall Weston is a rat of the worst order. Only his eldest son sees through his facade. Like Fiona, Marshall is married to the boardroom, but unlike Fiona, he will stop at nothing to maintain power and control of his company and his two families. Along with his rat persona, he is the ultimate narcissist (think of a certain orange-haired candidate for the Presidency.) If it was Danielle Steele's intent to create a most unlikable character, she did a wonderful job.
Danielle Steele's books are always entertaining, despite her writing style. If she had omitted the fluff, Power Play would have been half its length. Her writing guide must dictate to use as many words as possible to describe anything from a bibelot in someone's living room to each character. Normally, this overblown style would annoy me, but no one can question Danielle Steele's popularity. She will never write The Great American Novel, but she always spins a great yarn.
